Micro West Ford SIAM (Self Initiated Anti-Aircraft Missile) or SUBADS (Submarine Air-Defense System) Factory Model, 1/10
Micro West Ford SIAM (Self Initiated Anti-Aircraft Missile) or SUBADS (Submarine Air-Defense System) Factory Model, 1/10
Multimedia Model Kit,   old
$475

Very rare factory display model of the 1970s DARPA SIAM project, which was short for Self-Initiated Anti-Aircraft Missile. The idea was to develop a copmletely autonomous air-defense missile. One of the most obvious purposes was for use onboard submarines. The submarine can hear the aircraft or helicpoter as it approached since the sound propagates through the water. The submarine could then launch a SIAM buoy to the surface, where the missile would automatically detect and attack any incoming aircraft. It was also theorized that SIAM could be launched vertically from the submarine itself. SIAM was tested in the early 1980s and was generally successful. DARPA handed SIAM over to the Navy, where it was deactived due to funding. This factory model is complete with it's original stand. The wooden base has a metal disk showing a submarine launching a SIAM, which is shown executing it's 'dual homing' functions. The missile is just over 7 inches long. Condition is excellent. There base and metal badge are near mint. The missileis excellent, with all original paint and decals. There is some minor wear on some of the port gold decals.

Multimedia Model Kit,   old
$1400

Rare factory model from about 1957 or 1958. Missile measures 18 inches high. Includes original box in excellent condition with inside packing materials. Model 'stages' as the actual missile did.

Titan I was the USAs first multi-stage Interncontinental Ballistic Missile. Designed in 1955, it was originally a back-up for the Atlas program. Titan was larger than Atlas and was also seen as an early space launch vehicle. Titan was stored in hardened underground silos. The arrival of solid fuel Titan II and Minuteman I missiles in 1963 made Titan I obsolete. The follow-on, Titan II became a major workhorse in the space program and served well as a heavy lift ICBM.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++,   old

Adams N.S. Savannah, 1/457, K320-129
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+,   old
$89

This is the only ship kit released by Adams during their short production run in the late 1950s. This kit was also featured in the Nuclear Powered Gift set with two missiles. Kit is highly detailed and features clear promanade deck window inserts. The kit has never been started. Ship is inventoried complete with all parts. Includes decals, instructions with flag sheet. Adams was founded by Steve Adams and released plastic assembly kits in the late 1950s. The company was innovative and the general quality of most kits was very high for the time- so much that builders (not just collectors) still seek the kits today. Adams is best known today for a series of military vehicles and missiles, although they also released an aircraft (Draken), helicopter (YH-41), balloon (La Coquette) and ship (SS Savannah). Some of these appeared in gift sets as well. The Adams smaller scale (1/40) Atomic Cannon, Hawk Missile Battery, Honest John, Vanguard (1/80) and Thor (1/87)missiles and other kits are still sought after today. Combinations of these kits were issued in gift sets, which are very desirable collector's items today. In the late 1950s, Adams entered into a joint venture with Revell, and several of the military kits were released under the Revell label, such as the Jeep among others. Around 1960 there was a disagreement between Adams and Revell, and the agreement was terminated. Sometime after this, Adams quit the plastic model business, and Life-Like purchased most of the Adams molds.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+,   old
$165

Dramatic Ray Gaedke artwork. Rare early issue from the 1950s. The Convair VTO was a Navy program for a high performance zero-length take off fighter. The aircraft flew well but transition from vertical/horizontal and back was tricky. This, combined with the performance of the new jets signaled the end of the program in 1955. Comes with boarding ladder. Molded in the correct high gloss silver and clear. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufactures.

Comet Boeing B-29 Superfortress - 25.5 inch Wing Span Solid Model, 1/64, M3
Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM++,   old
$155

In the 1930s and 1940s, most modelers built the flying stick and tissue type models with rubber, co2 or gas power. But there were a small but measurable percent that built solid aircraft display models of great detail. This required great skill worth of the shipbuilders of old, especially considering the limited offerings. Many manufactures issued blocks of wood and a plan - the famous (or infamous) 'Make Wood Look Like Plane' kits. A few manufactures made expensive super detailed kits with metal accessories (like Dyna-Products). Comet came in the middle and struck a nice balance of detail and cost. 1944 issue in investment grade condition. The box is factory new. Inside, the kit has never been started and is 100% complete with all wooden parts, clear plastic blisters, black plastic wheels, decals (like new!), sandpaper, full plans, glue and a glass bottle of dope or sanding sealer.
